The Historic Heartlands is part of the campaign to promote Ireland’s Ancient East by Tourism Ireland.
Lisheen Castle, Co. Tipperary, is located right in the heart of the historic heartlands and is ideal to be used as base to explore and discover ancient Irish heritage.
You could decide to stay in the castle on a vacation rental and live like a Lord or Lady in the beautifully restored Georgian-era castle. Then take your time uncovering the mysteries of Ireland’s ancient heritage.
Alternatively you may prefer to have the hard part done for you and choose the Ireland Tour Package where you can enjoy a luxury all-inclusive holiday with all your trips and meals included.
The Historic Heartlands is much more than cosy National Heritage Towns and sleepy mirrored lakes. This is where saints converted kings at the Rock of Cashel, Kilkenny Castle changed hands for a song and Iron Age victims were surrendered to Lough Boora Bog.
Included on Tourism Ireland’s list for this category are the widely known Rock of Cashel and Kilkenny Castle – always worth a visit for their architechtural splendour and rich history. But it is also well worth visiting the following places of interest and outstanding natural beauty – all are within 1.5 hour’s drive of Lisheen Castle, Co. Tipperary!
